Lunch & Learn focuses on reflux

Dec. 04, 2012 @ 07:38 PM

Maria Parham Medical Center will host a free Lunch & Learn program this Friday. The theme will be “GERD: Not as Funny as It Sounds.” Alexis Edwards, RN and coordinator for the hospital’s heartburn treatment center, will educate the group about the disease and today’s treatment options.
A complimentary lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the hospital classroom. The presentation will commence at noon in the auditorium. A question and answer session will take place afterwards, along with handouts and giveaways.
Although the event and lunch are free, those interested in attending must still RSVP to Jeannie at (252) 436-1401 by Thursday, at 2 p.m., so that appropriate lunch arrangements may be made.
Due to the high volume of calls, call-backs cannot be provided to confirm reservations; callers should leave a message with their name and the number of people they wish to include in their party. Those who cannot ultimately attend should call back to cancel reservations.
